Radio Shack NiMH

Is anyone using the new radio shack 15 minute rechargeable NiMH batteries? I think that they are 1.2v 800.
My current rechargeable are 1.2v 600 & take 13 hrs to recharge. I think that all together its over $60 for batteries & charger. Worth it?

The radio shack I-C3 chargers are just Rayovac I-C3 chargers with a different sticker on them... I dont doubt the batteries are the same thing... although radio shack mighta snaged the "lesser" batches from Rayovac...

Don't bother with the Radioshack one go with Rayovac they invented the Ic-3 technology and its much cheaper than Radioshack. Rayovac chargers are the same price but the Shack batteries cost about $25 for 4 AAA twice the price of Rayovac that's insane. I haven't used the Shacks batteries but the Rayovac's are real punchy and there system is real easy to use. Hope that Helps

I go to Warrick's hobby shop up in Plantation, but I haven't gone in a while.
The third floor in my building at work is vacant/ not built, so for now until they build I've been running there during lunch. Its a huge flat space, but its a little dusty.
